    As previously stated, I got roped into a league with little to no idea what I'm doing. I get the general premise obviously, but the finer points escape me. However, we had our auto draft and I did do some fiddling with my ranks (sounds dirty) so here's what I ended up with

    PG-Dwill
    SG -MoWill (bler)
    SF-Granger
    PF-Aldridge
    C-Horford

    G-Lowry
    C-Noah
    F-Gallo
    U-Thomas Robinson
    U-MKG

    B-Beal
    B-Valanciunas


    Ok so what do ya think? Any tips/comments welcome.......

    Obviously I'm weak at SG, and my rookie count is definitely a worry(at least they are all rookies that will play) Was happy getting DWill, Aldridge then Horford with my first 3 picks though

    Ha! You join another league and not ours? What's up, Quazz?1?!?! :lol:

    Alright, sounds like a pretty decent team, but it's hard to compare without taking at look at other teams. I'd say scoring is going to be a challenge, as you have decent scorers, but not great ones. Also lack shooters. Other than that, seems like a pretty strong team overall.

    Just got offered Ty lawson for Al Horford. Very tempting, but the basketball purist in me is struggling to accept a midget guard for a C lol

    Three words: no f*cking way.


    I like Lawson a lot, but you don't need it. Unless you're going to consider focusing on a few stats and just forget the rest.

    I approve of this cold (like that? :D :oops: ) message! :evil:

    As for your dilemma...............as you chose these supposed "friends" over your GSWRT BROTHERS!!!.............I am inclined to say no to assisting you! :twisted:

    Seeing as I am bored though, I will say that TMC is right............is difficult to know what you need to do if we dont know who and what you are up against.

    To be honest, I dont think your 3/outside shooting problem is as bad as TMC says............Lowry will get 1.5 ish, D-Will the same, Mo Will will be bombing away for at least 2 a game, Granger the same, Gallo will be in the 1.5 to 2 range.............and you have some others that can bomb 3's, so I dont see a problem there at all (but again, this depends on what the other teams have).

    Overall scoring, maybe a slight problem there.............but your going to have good rebounding, assists, steals, FT% and 3's (for me)...........so thats 5 categories! your biggest problem are will be blocks and turnovers.

    Maybe post who is on the wire, perhaps the top 20 on whatever site you are using to rank them with and we can make suggestions............. definitely dont like the amount of rooks youve got but they at least will all be getting time with their respective teams, so you have the best possible scenario with rooks there.

    Surely there is a better option on the wire than Valusiousness or whatever his name is..............get some names and we can sort this out. ;)

    see I'm quite high on Jonas this year. Should play a lot and I love what ive seen from him in international play

    will post the wire 20 tonight though. Atm ive dropped Tony Allen, and I'm after Brandon Rush from it.

    how I have no Warriors is beyond me

    Yeah, I suppose Jonas's value/risk depends on whats available on the wire..................speaking of, you dropped Allen? didnt see him on your original list and to be honest, I dont like that as he is a very good fantasy player to have.

    The steals, the boards from the guard position, the lack of turnovers from the guard position and the steady percentages............one of those classic fantasy players that hardly anyone thinks is useful but really is.

    Anyway, its done.

    dont get me started on veto's... veto's are complete CRAP. While certainly (on the surface) benefiting one team, there is no way in hell that trade should be vetoed. Might as well not even have a trade function

    I've seen worse. MUCH worse. I wouldn't veto that deal. Although I think the guy that gets CP3 and Harden gets the better part of the deal, by far.

    In basketball it is even more crap..............football, you can mostly see that a team is getting better at RB, WR, QB or whatever and thats that.

    That trade, whilst unbalanced in terms of real world talent, may make the guy who is getting Jennings and Monroe champion! because of the need on his teams for the cats they do well in.

    On other hand, it isnt fair in terms of fantasy production...............but thats not the problem is it, as even with that, the extra 3's from Jennings and boards from Monroe might make his team better.
